Brock Lesnar returned to the Octagon after almost five years and defeated the number eight ranked heavyweight in the world, one-punch-knockout-artist Mark Hunt via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring the fight 29-27. The fight was the co-main event for the historic UFC 200 mega-event at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
“Oh, man, it took me a little while to get acclimated,” Lesnar said. “Words can’t describe it. Thank you, everybody. Thanks so much.”
Just days shy of his 39th birthday, Brock Lesnar‘s return came at a perfect time for UFC, the world’s premier mixed martial arts organization which is reportedly in the midst of a sale worth four billion dollars.
“People don’t realize, for a guy who only fought a few times in this sport, then goes away for as long as he has, his age and everything … to come back and do what he did tonight is pretty impressive,” noted UFC President Dana White on ESPN SportsCenter.
White offered, “He’s a freak of nature.”
